Business succession planning workshop set for Staples

Eloise Thorson will lead a workshop addressing business succession at the Staples campus of Central Lakes College, Brainerd, on Monday, Feb. 7 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. in room E100.

When the economy recovers will your organization be able to retain and attract the employees necessary to carry out the important work you do?

Providing job security and good pay and benefits will not be enough to ensure you are properly staffed to address the needs of your customer into the next decades. You will need employees whose skills are targeted to your key strategies and who are engaged in your organization.

The combination of appropriate technical skills and high job satisfaction is necessary to create a culture of teamwork, high performance and productivity.

Succession planning is no easy task for top management. However, treating it as a strategic issue will highlight its importance and help you take the actions necessary to ensure you have an engaged, high-performing workforce in place to meet the challenges of tomorrow.

Bottom line results will come from your investment in succession planning and employee development.

Eloise Thorson will lead the workshop, which has a $29 fee.

Payment is required at the time of registration, and the deadline is Jan. 31. For information call toll-free (800) 933-0346, ext. 8142, or (218) 855-8142.
